Barbz Army, you can put down the flashlights and finally get some shut-eye tonight.
After Nicki Minaj pulled a classic Houdini act, disappearing from social media all 2018 and clicking off her Instagram comments, fans put up missing posters all over the internet in search for their Barbie leader.
Leave it to her good friend and fellow Queens VIP DJ Clue to give fans a sigh of relief after not only locating her, but posting the first 2018 Nicki update flick that’s sure to excite the Barbz even more.
Taking to his Instagram, Clue threw up a flick of himself and Nicki posted up in her Barbie-certified custom studio. The signature Nicki neon light above the two gives away the not-so-top-secret location. The Pinkprint femcee sits pretty on the couch with her legs propped up and a soft smile for the camera.
As it appears, those who speculated that she privately jetted away from the Twitterverse and Instagram to focus on her music were right. Nicki ended 2017 on a hot tip, throwing fire on her assistive verses for A$AP Ferg’s “Plain Jane (Remix)” and the controversial “MotorSport” track with Migos and Cardi B. She still kept music from her highly anticipated fourth studio album tightly sealed away in the vault, though. Now that fans can rest assured that she’s been hard at work in the booth, courtesy of DJ Clue’s photo from her first 2018 sighting, the excitement only grows thicker. And her absence is not in vain.
See the proof that Nicki’s staying booked and busy in the photo below.
